On the 3rd of March, 2015, NVIDIA may release their first virtual reality headset. Like NVIDIA SHIELD and the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet , this device could be the center player for NVIDIA technology in its own unique field.

NVIDIA Shield tablet owners have a new software update that is available now for the device.

According to Google's Sundar Pichai, Google Apps users will be able to use Gmail's "Inbox" system very, very soon. This means that apps customers will be able to use this Gmail alternative - using Gmail's innards - for whatever they do so please - "imminently."
